Free! -Eternal Summer- Cast Announcement: Momo & Ai

Today’s Free! -Eternal Summer- dub cast announcement is a double team! We’re featuring more Samezuka Swim Club members—Eternal Summer newcomer and hyperactive stag beetle collector Momotaro Mikoshiba (Momo) and Rin’s not-so-secret, pure-hearted admirer, the shy Aiichiro Nitori (Ai-chan).





Momo is played by Jerry Jewell, the voice behind Hetalia’s Russia, Black Butler’s Lau, and Fruits Basket’s Kyo Sohma (another rowdy redhead!). Ai is played by Josh Grelle, who brought you such roles as Attack on Titan’s Armin Arlert, Princess Jellyfish’s Kuranosuke Koibuchi, and The Devil is a Part-Timer!’s Sadao Maou.


Josh answered a couple questions for us!


Question: Can you swim? If so, what’s your best stroke?

Josh: Yes. I’m great at floating.


Question: What’s your favorite marine animal?

Josh: Jellyfish.


Question: When you were in high school, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Josh: Actor.
